Well, it happened: we sold our home in San Francisco, and in a couple of days we’ll officially own our suburban dream home. It happened so much more quickly than we expected that we’re still processing it all. On one hand, we are deeply grateful: our San Francisco home was on the market for just a few days before we received an offer we couldn’t refuse, and our dream home offer was accepted in an extremely competitive scenario. Our realtors on both ends worked some serious magic to make this happen, so a very big thank you to Amanda Sharp at Paragon Realty in San Francisco and Anian Tunney at The Grubb Company in (spoiler alert!) Piedmont. These women are smart, savvy and all class, and we couldn’t recommend them more highly.
But much as we are thrilled with this stunning execution, we’re also a little shellshocked. We knew our home in San Francisco would sell quickly given the white-hot real estate market, but THIS quickly? It’s wild. Thankfully, the new owners of our home are graciously allowing us one final month to say a proper farewell to our beloved city. It’s not as if we won’t still be able to visit all of our favorite San Francisco haunts, but they won’t be there waiting for us to stroll in on a random Thursday just because we felt like it. A trip of certain deliberateness will be required.
So stay tuned for The Fusco Farewell Tour as we visit those San Francisco spots that are nearest and dearest to our hearts. Whether you’re a fellow local or searching for ideas for your next visit, we hope you’ll enjoy this nostalgic tour as much as we (and our stomachs) will!
